The Girl in the Empty Room. From the bestselling author of Isolation.
A troubled single mother goes missing. A highly unusual sexually-transmitted infection spreads around a small town. Two bodies wash up on a beach.
Are these seemingly unrelated events connected to a government plot to eliminate undesirable members of society; an ancient myth about an Indian chief; a series of unsolved copycat murders; or to a self-proclaimed shaman and tattooist – a man who believes his body art is infused with magical powers?
Hundreds of people eventually succumb to the infection. The town is quarantined. The shaman’s tattoos do indeed come to life, inciting gruesome acts of violence. In a supernatural twist, the missing woman becomes an unlikely hero – a wrathful conduit – avenging a great evil perpetrated against a peaceful tribe of people hundreds of years ago.
The Girl in the Empty Room is released September 2017.
#1 The Jim Cobb Murder Mysteries
Between 1932 and 1942, five unidentified white males between 25 and 45 were murdered in gruesome circumstances known as the Hanging Murders. At the time, during the Depression, many men wandered the country looking for work, food, and a new beginning. No one missed them.
Their murders were never solved. They became cold cases – until now, 1957.
When a man is found hanging upside down, cut up like butcher’s meat in a slaughterhouse, Jim Cobb, Sheriff of Inyo County, begins to investigate. What follows is a gruesome, dark journey into the heart of America.
The Hanging Murderer has returned.
